Lot - ( Lut )
And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot;
and each We have preferred over the worlds.
And Lot, he said to his people:
“Do you commit lewdness such as none of those of the worlds had done before? You are approaching the men out of desire instead of the women!
Indeed, you are a transgressing people.”
The only response of his people was:
“Drive them out of your town;
they are a people who wish to be pure!”
We saved him and his family, except for his wife;
she was of those who were destroyed.
And when Our messengers came to Lot,
he was grieved by them and he felt discomfort for them and
“This is a distressful day.”
And his people came rushing towards him,
and before it they were committing sin,
“My people, these are my daughters, they are purer for you,
so be aware of God and do not disgrace me regarding my guests. Is there no wise man among you?”
“You know we have no interest in your daughters,
and you are aware of what we want!”
“If only I had strength against you,
or I could find for myself some powerful support.”
“O Lot, we are messengers of your Lord; they will not be able to harm you, so travel with your family during the cover of the night and let not any of you look back except for your wife,
she will be afflicted with what they will be afflicted.
Their scheduled time will be the morning.
Is the morning not near?”
So when Our command came,
We made its highest part become its lowest, and We rained on it with hardened fiery projectiles. Marked from your Lord, and they are never far from the wicked.
“What then is your affair, O messengers?”
“We have been sent to a people who are criminals.”
“Except for the family of Lot, we will save them all.”
“Except for his wife, we have evaluated that she will be with those destroyed.”
So when the messengers came to the family of Lot.
“You are an unknown people.”
“Alas, we have come to you with that which they are doubting. And we have come to you with the truth, and we are forthcoming. So let your family leave during the late hours of the night, and you follow just behind them, and do not let any of you look back, and go to where you are commanded.”
And We made the matter known to him,
that the remainder of these people would be wiped out by the morning. And the people of the city came seeking good news.
“These are my guests, so do not embarrass me!”
“And be aware of God, and do not disgrace me!”
“Did we not prohibit you from the world?”
“Here are my daughters if it is your intention.”
By your life, they are in their drunkenness, blundering.
So the scream took them at sunrise. Thus We made its highest part become its lowest, and We rained upon them fiery projectiles. In this are signs for those who see. And it was on an established path. In that is a sign for the believers.
And Lot, We gave him wisdom and knowledge,
and We saved him from the town that used to do vile things.
They were a people of evil, wicked.
And We admitted him into Our mercy. He was of the good doers.
And if they deny you, then before them the people of Noah
and ‘Aad and Thamud had also denied.
And the people of Abraham and the people of Lot.
And they have come upon the town that was showered with a miserable shower. Did they not see it?
No, they do not expect any resurrection.
The people of Lot denied the messengers.
For their brother Lot said to them:
“Will you not be righteous? I am to you a trustworthy messenger. So be aware of God and obey me.”
“And I do not ask you for any wage, for my reward is upon the Lord of the worlds. Do you approach the males of the worlds?”
“And you leave what your Lord has created for you of mates?
You are an intrusive people!”
“If you do not cease O Lot, you will be among those driven out.”
“I am in severe opposition to your acts!”
“My Lord, save me and my family from what they do.”
So We saved him and his entire family.
Except for an old woman who remained.
Then We destroyed the others. And We rained upon them a rain. Miserable was the rain to those who had been warned.
In that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
And Lot, when he said to his people:
“Are you committing lewdness while you can clearly see?”
“You are approaching the men out of desire instead of the women! Indeed, you are an ignorant people.”
But the reply of his people was that they said:
“Expel the family of Lot from your town,
for they are a people who are being pure!”
So We saved him and his family, except for his wife;
We found her to be of those doomed. And We rained down a rain upon them. Miserable was the rain of those warned.
And he said:
“You have taken idols besides God in order to preserve some friendship among you in this worldly life.
But then, on the Day of Resurrection,
you will reject one another, and curse one another.
Your destiny is Hell, and you will have no victors.”
Lot believed with him and said:
“I am emigrating to my Lord. He is the Noble, the Wise.”
And We granted him Isaac and Jacob,
and We made within his progeny the prophethood and the Book. And We gave him his reward in this world,
and in the Hereafter he is among the righteous.
And Lot, when he said to his people:
“You commit a lewdness that no others in the world have done before! You sexually approach men, and you commit highway robbery, and you bring all vice to your society.”
But the only response from his people was to say:
“Bring us the retribution of God, if you are being truthful!”
“My Lord, grant me victory over the wicked people.”
And when Our messengers came to Abraham with good news,
“We are to destroy the people of such a town, for its people have been wicked.”
“But Lot is in it!”
“We are fully aware of who is in it. We will save him and his family, except his wife; she is of those doomed.”
And when Our messengers came to Lot, they were mistreated,
and he was embarrassed towards them.
And they said:
“Do not fear, and do not be saddened. We will save you and your family, except for your wife; she is of those doomed.”
“We will send down upon the people of this town an affliction from the heaven for what wickedness they were in.”
And We left remains of it as a clear sign for a people who comprehend.
And Lot was one of the messengers. When We saved him and all his family. Except an old woman who remained.
Then, We destroyed the rest. And you pass by their ruins in the morning; And in the night. Do you not comprehend?
And Thamud, and the people of Lot, and the dwellers of the Canyon; these are the Confederates. Each of them disbelieved the messengers, therefore My retribution came to be.
And Aad, and Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot. And the people of the forest, and the people of Tubba`. All of them disbelieved the messengers, so the promise came to pass.
What is your undertaking, O messengers?
We have been sent to a criminal people. To send down upon them stones of clay. Prepared by your Lord for the transgressors. We then vacated from it all the believers.
But We only found in it one house of those who had submitted. And We left in it a sign for those who fear the painful retribution.
The people of Lot rejected the warners. We sent upon them projectiles. Except for the family of Lot, We saved them at dawn. A blessing from Us; it is thus that We reward the thankful. And he warned them about Our punishment,
but they ridiculed the warnings. And they sought to remove him from his guests; so We diverted their eyes.
Taste My retribution; you have been warned.
And in the early morning, a devastating retribution struck them. Taste My retribution; you have been warned.
God puts forth as examples of those who have rejected, the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot. They were married to two of Our righteous servants, but they betrayed them and, consequently, they could not help them at all against God.
And it was said:
Enter the Fire, both of you, with those who will enter it.
